Phish @ DTE Energy Music Theatre, Clarkston MI
Phish bassist Mike Gordon celebrated his birthday last night in Clarkston, MI, where his band performed at the DTE Energy Music Theatre aka Pine Knob. Yesterday marked Phish’s first outdoor show in Michigan since 1994.
After filling the PNC setlist with short versions of usually lengthy tunes, Phish broke out of their shell in Clarkston by delivering a near 25-minute Down With Disease in which the band found a groove and rode it hard. We’ll have a full review of last night’s show and a photo set soon. READ ON for the setlist and The Skinny…

When guitarist Bill Nershi of the String Cheese Incident announced he’d be leaving the band after their 2007 Summer Tour, we all knew it was just a matter of time before the group known for their eclectic blend of sounds, hula hooping fans and group hoots would return to the scene. It turns out their breakup didn’t even last two years, as the Colorado-based band will stage their comeback at the second annual Rothbury Festival in Michigan.
